Belgian Malinois Mali has been presented with the PDSA Dickin Medal (the animal equivalent of the VC) for his heroic actions with the Special Boat Service when he helped flush out the Taliban in Kabul.  The courageous eight year old dog detected insurgents and sniffed out explosives while under fire, suffering injuries to his chest, face and legs.  Over the years pigeons, horses, a cat and 31 dogs have received the Dickin Medal but Maili is unusual because he is the first living dog in seven years to receive the award.  He has now retired from frontline duties but instead of putting his paws up, he is still working: helping to train new dog handlers.  Well done Mali!
